Custom Control and Control Panel Applets

    I am attempting to use a custom control in a property page that is part 
of a control panel applet.   Has anyone successfully done this?    If a 
create the property page and just put the custom control on it (without 
adding any code for the custom control), the property page does not 
display.    I have attempted to create a custom class for this control (one 
which registers itself with windows) but that isn't working either.    From 
some of the articles that I have read, the control panel applet is control 
by a hidden window that I somehow need to make process the messages for my 
custom control (Article by Paul DiLasca, I think).    

If someone could help me out I would really appreciate it...

Hi Mark,

>I am attempting to use a custom control in a property page that is part 
>of a control panel applet.  ...

Based on my understanding, you want to use a custom control in a property 
page of a control panel applet, and when you click that property page of 
the control panel applet, it just disappears. Please let me know if I have 
misunderstood anything. 

It seems you insert your custom control to the property page's template 
dialog resource at design-time, am I right?

If so, this may be the problem. There is no problem with your custom 
control(you also have tested with other ActiveX controls) and the 
CPropertyPage class, but the .CPL extension has some problems to initialize 
the ActiveX control which you added at design time, so the corresponding 
property sheet shell fails to load. I suggest you import the custom 
control's type library info to your program and create the control it at 
run-time via its Create function.

Custom Entity Relationship CRM 3.0
I have created a new custom entity (A) for which I need to create two referential relationships to other custom entities (B) & (C). (A) is the primary entity in both cases. The relationship between (A) and (B) acts normally. The relationship between (A) and (C) doesn't. When I try to add a (C) record from (A), (A) displays two records in the (C) lookup. One "record" displays data from system fields (created on and status). The second "record" displys data from the primary field. I am not able to access (C) record from the associated view in (A), but I can a...

Tracking customer orders when receiving stock
With our current POS system we can place items on order for a particular customer (whether we are holding the stock or not) and when we generate purchase orders the system automatically pops up letting us know we have pending orders for customers. We can then generate a purchase order based on this information. When we receive the stock, we can print out a report for that order that lists what stock needs to be allocated to which customers. Is there a way with RMS that we can do this? Unfortunately it is a regular occurance that our stock levels can be incorrect, for instance we may have a 0 ...

Making a drop down control to choose a data series
Hi charting folks. I have a chart that has six data series plotted onto it. There are two sets of three "tests" that get their data plotted One in the morning and one in the evening. Right now, the chart is a bit cluttered with all six plots on it. They are, however, useful for an overall view. What I would like to do is create a drop down control that has three selections. Morning, Evening, and All. The All is obvious, and the Morning would select three columns of data, and the evening would select the other three. If I were to name the two sets of data using a ...

Custom ActiveX control fails on release build

Nothing special there. VC: The control was installed and registered on the test machine through the installer and is located in the system folder.
